Wow!! Today was great, the students listened with enthusiam. Margy Knight talked about the different walls around the world and what they meant to their communities. The kids also discussed observations of what was on their "main street". We wanted to know how observant they are of their own surroundings. Margy asked about the color of the fire hydrants, what is the statue in front of the police station, what the numbers on the fire station stood for. Many did not know or remember. It was great, because now kids will really look at their surroundings.
